's all somehow inevitable and that the only way for america to get ahead is for places like elkhart to be left behind. you hear that argument sometime in washington. but i know and you know that the truth is exactly the opposite. i'm here because i believe our ability to recover and to prosper as a nation depends on what happens in communities just like this one. the battle for america's future will be fought and won in places like elkhart and detroit and goshen and pittsburgh, south bend, youngstown, in cities and towns across indiana and across the midwest and across the country that have been the backbone of america. it will be won by making places like elkhart what they once were and can be again, and that is centers of innovation and entrepreneurship and ingenuity and opportunity. the whirring engines of america. we can't afford to run the race at half strength or half speed. if we hope to lead this century like we did the last century, we have to create the conditions and opportunities for places like elkhart to succeed. we have to harness the potential, the innovative and cr

a great story it is for america, and what a great story it is that president obama would give us a chance to consider judge sotomayor to serve as the first hispanic woman on the united states supreme court. for many who oppose judge sotomayor, her life achievements and her judicial record are just not good enough. after poring over 3,000 court decisions and hundreds of her speeches, judge sotomayor's critics focused their opposition primarily, not exclusively, but primarily on one case, the ricci case, and on one sentence from one speech. i hope someone was keeping track of how many times those three words wise latina woman were quoted during the course of this hearing. senator after senator asked her what did you really, really, really mean with those three words over and over again. we are senators who live in a world of decisions and votes every day, and we understand when our decisions and votes are questioned and challenged often in an unfair fashion. if we vote in a way that's controversial, we ask that people be fair and judge us on our life's work, not on a single vote. it's a sta

need health care in america. one of the people who really got the people have asked me, what was it like? i tell people that barack obama, the most thing that i will say is driving him is that he watched his white mother died because of inefficiency in health care in america. i think that is the number one driving force, that he does not want to see that happen to americans, white and black, across the board. and he is going to fight with everything he has got because he watched it. he does not have his mother anymore, he does not have his father anymore, and i think he wants people like me who get laid off, 10,000 of us, and know that we need health care in america. thank god for people like sharon brower, the senator who is working hard -- like sherrod brown, the senator who is working hard on behalf of the american people. i worked 45 years of my life and got laid off. people have no idea what it is like to be laid off in america if you have never been laid off. we need this, and i thank god for barack obama, sherrod brown, in the people who are fighting for our rights to

by physicians. it is the heart of the american practice of medicine. the most famous hospitals in america. either started out or still are physician-owned. like the mayo clinic, john hopkins in baltimore. in my state, md anderson. not every state allows physicians to have an interest, an equity/ownership interest in hospitals. in those states that do they have the highest quality rating, patient satisfaction ratings. i am blessed in my congressional district to have a number of physician-owned hospitals. i have been treated in the hospitals. i have gone to the emergency rooms in the hospitals. my mother has been in one of these. without exception. the experience has been as good as it can be given the situation that resulted in it. the pending bill for some reason is punitive. on these types of facilities. would at a minimum prevent their expansion. in all probability cause a number of them to close. if you read the language that my amendment strikes it is punitive and nature and very restrictive. some limited exceptions where you can appeal to the secretary of hhs. if we're going to have

that united america. after sputnik, we went to pick the moon. ronald reagan rally in the country to end communism. you can think of george bush's cry in 2001 that we would defeat -- lead a global war on terrorism and extremism. it is interesting, the last one, the war on terrorism seems to have lost some of that national feeling. when you do polling, you see people not as invested in the success of afghanistan and iraq and other places where we are fighting were secretly, such as the horn of africa. yet in our strategic interest, clearly fighting terrorism will remain the big issue. he what is the next big national issue? what can president obama defined as the national agenda? he tried very much to make health care that. in the last press conference he said it is intimately tied to your own personal future as an american. but we have not seen americans rally around that idea yet as a national cause. this is something president obama and his allies will try to do. he will try to cast the health care debate as important as going to the moon or defeating communism or terrorism you will se

grew out of a culture which had lied to itself for generations. so to get america on track, we have to start with basic honesty. when the polish people began rebelling against the communist dictatorship after pope john paul's visit, they used 2 plus 2 equals 4 as a slogan. a communist era joke in poland expressed this in a way that everyone could grasp. party boss, how much is 2 plus 2? polish worker, how much would you like it to be. the political meaning of the realist assumption of the catholic university of will you be lynn philosopher was later expressed in the famous solidarity poster, for poland to be poland, 2 plus 2 must always equal 4. human beings can only be free in the truth and the measure of truth is reality. now, i think this is very, very important and you'll see how it comes back in sacramento, in albany, in washington, d.c., again and again. we have a l politics and government of fundamental dishonesty, in which we refuse to face the facts because the facts are too frightening. in orwell's 1984, citizens are told, when the state says 2 plus 2 equals 5 it does and

americans back to work and build a new foundation for growth. last week, we received a report on america's gross domestic product, a key measure of our economic health, and it showed marked improvement over the last few months. this morning, we received additional signs that the worst may be behind us, though we lost 247,000 jobs in july, that was nearly 200,000 fewer jobs lost than in june, and far fewer than the nearly 700,000 jobs a month that we were losing at the beginning of the year. today, we're pointed in the right direction. we're losing jobs at less than half the rate we were when when i took office. we pulled the financial system back from the brink and a rising market is restoring value to those 401(k)s that are the foundation of a secure retirement. we've enabled families to reduce the payments on their mortgages and in making their homes more affordable and reducing the number of foreclosures. we helped to revive the credit markets and opened up loans for families and small businesses. while we've rescued our economy from catastrophe, we've also begun to build a new founda
